Ooh, We Love You Pierre
While looking up something about Rep. Mike Castle (R-Del.) I ran across his Wikipedia page. Either it was edited by former Gov. Pierre “Pete” du Pont or one of du Pont’s family members has sent him an early Valentine’s Day gift.
As the hand-picked choice of the popular Governor du Pont, he easily won election as Governor of Delaware … in the campaign, Castle was criticized for being a shadow of his mentor, and only promising an extension of du Pont’s program. [...]
Following du Pont’s very successful and popular terms as Governor, Delaware politics seemed to have reached a consensus, with leaders of both parties being regularly re-elected, while working closely and quietly together on a conservative fiscal low tax, pro business, and clean government agenda … From 1977 until the present there have been four governors, two from each party, each emulating Castle in essentially carrying out the program initiated by Pierre S. du Pont, IV.
Pierre du Pont for president! Oh, wait.
